... in the central Mormon Mountains-East Mormon Mountains-Tule Springs Hills transect was controlled by two major west-dipping detachment faults: the older and structurally higher Mormon Peak detachment and the younger, structurally lower Tule Springs detachment. The Mormon Peak detachment cut gradually (5 to 25...

... rapid exhumation at 14–13 Ma and 5.8–7.1 km of vertical exhumation. Using a range of restored fault dips (20°–28°) for the Mormon Peak detachment, the thermochronology data record 10.9–19.5 km horizontal extension. Data from the Tule Springs detachment also show a similar timing of exhumation...
